LIVE: Follow Tiger Woods in his return to the PGA Tour

“I have no more pain in my back,” Woods said Wednesday.

The real test begins Thursday at a tournament he has won seven times, not including his U.S. Open title in 2008.

This will be only his second PGA Tour event since August 2015.

Woods will tee off Thursday in the Farmers Insurance Open on the South Course of Torey Pines in San Diego at 1:40 p.m. in a group with Charley Hoffman and former UGA golfer Patrick Reed.
